Scripting Mail on Suse

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to use a script to send a mail notification. I've tried using nail (ie. nail -s "Subject" me@domain.com) but it is requiring an interrupt (Cntl D) to complete. How can I script this? Thanks.

Re: Scripting Mail on Suse

You need to pass the body, create a text file with the body contents, for example, message.txt, and use

mail -s "subject" user@domain.com < message.txt

The message.txt can be any text file, this could be the log of an application or a backup.
